Then Balaam saw Amalek1 and uttered his oracle: "Amalek was first among the nations, but he will come to ruin at last."221
Then he saw the Kenites3 and uttered his oracle: "Your dwelling place is secure,4 your nest is set in a rock;
yet you Kenites will be destroyed when Asshur5 takes you captive."
Then he uttered his oracle: "Ah, who can live when God does this?a24
Ships will come from the shores of Kittim;6 they will subdue Asshur7 and Eber,8 but they too will come to ruin.9"
Then Balaam10 got up and returned home and Balak went his own way.
